Brokaw Family Legacy, page 8

In preparation for Gen. 10, I had to rejoin the two lineages back
together. The Gen. 9 kids are seventh cousins, which is far enough
apart that it shouldn't be icky. (If I had paid closer attention in my
pop gen class, I could calculate their inbreeding coefficients for you.)
I decided to be efficient and plan a massive
triple wedding, which might be cool and will more likely be a huge
disaster. The set has been built; now we just need to wait for some
engagements to happen.
First, some pictures:
Worst. Birthday. Ever: Kristin's teen-to-adult party is spoiled by her
father's ghost-related death. "Daaaaad! You're embarrassing me!!" she
And now, engagement pictures:
Zaidi and David
Zelda and Bruce
Kristin and Zachary
And now... the wedding of the year! It didn't go perfectly smoothly but
I rather liked
how the evening ultimately turned out.
The Generation Nine
The day begins with inspecting the wedding site, a lot I built just for
Plenty of champagne and cake would be needed! Bruce confides that he's
bought a present for Zelda. Zachary thinks, "Crap, was I supposed to
get Kristin something?"
David checks out the DJ booth.
Okay, enough of that. Let's get down to business!
Many vows are exchanged.
Piles of Brokaws! L-R: Eliza, Maxine, Hayden, Lincoln, Vincent,
Ashley, Logan, Zelda, Bruce, and Zachary. Not pictured: Megan.
(There were timing issues with the simultaneous ceremonies; the guests
only would sit for the one who arranged the party, so this shot is
during David and Zaidi's ceremony. I had to exit w/o saving a few times
to get the pictures I wanted.)
Kristin and Zachary...awww
Zelda and Bruce try to be all serious while Zaidi and David run amok
The champagne flows freely. We actually forgot all about the cakes.
Wedding smustle! Plus: crashers (a recently cloned Paula, in pink, and
you can just see Kelly behind Zaidi. They were actually part of the
built a new lot!" welcoming committee). Zelda copes by chugging from
Run for the limo!!!!
How do you fit six people into a limo? Not easily.
On the return trip, Zaidi has to sit in front.
Now that the guests are all gone, the wedding couples have the lot to
themselves. Without a care in the world, they proceed to have their own
party that goes until sunrise...
David and Zaidi are being cutesy. Zelda and Bruce are embarrassed for
The Paula House heirs discuss the reception and agree it was a
Yes, David, you got married. We know.
The Peter House heirs
And then the sun sets and the dancing begins...
A little champagne fuel
Just before sunrise... and David's ride for work is here already. The
magical night comes to an end.
Now, they can't all live on the wedding lot, because that would just be
weird. I moved Zachary and Kristin into Maxine's house, and the twinses
into Eliza's house (where she was very lonely after Amin died). A day
later we had three sets of lullaby bells. Here comes Gen. 10!
